with a right turn off into about 7km mixed of damaged tar and gravel road.
Our intention is to visit the beach and to pay a surprise visit to Helmi
and his brother in law Fazillah.Helmi a shutdown crew member is from the Kedayan tribe
majority of which are muslim while Fazillah works with GENP.
Stalls selling farm products at the junction of Kg Nyalau.
The bumps starts here,it's not so bad compared to the 52 km of terrible road we went through to reach Mukah.
This part of gravel road is ok,only a bit slippery when raining.
The welcome sign board to Kuala Nyalau.

A net used to catch small shrimp for making belacan,
this village produce one of the most delicious belacan i have ever tasted,
many thanks to Helmi who introduced the homemade belacan his mother made,
i bought 2kg of it,heh! heh!
A round of hammock.
The story was a big group was supposed to come but due to hangover from drinks last night
i only managed to net three and that also was after 3 hours going round Bintulu hunting
and waking them up,
so we only started our journey at 12noon instead of 9am.
Part of the road in the village is concrete and it is either too narrow or damaged.
The most beautiful wooden house in the village.
Water lilies in the pond by the road side.
Helmi,Anding,the owner of the nice house and Simone.
Two small boats line the black coloured beach ,darken because of fine wood chips.
An abandoned hut by the beach.
A nice shaped burn off log.

Another very unique feature on this beach is the rocks
which are nicely carved to smaller pieces by errosion from a single big one.
This rock formations is of tourism material plus another elephant tusk shaped rock on another cape a distance away which unfortunately i couldn't go due to falling light.
A crocodile head shaped stone!
Tongkat Ali trees line the roads in the village,planted by the villagers.
The same goes with electricity,Helmi have to depend on the generator to light up the house at night even though there is a main diesel engine generator for the village i assumed it is provided by SESCO which have broken down many moons ago.
Dead electric wires and poles line the village road which have a primary school and also a homestay guest house.
Meter which will never moves until someone repairs the damaged diesel engine.
I wonder what is happening to the BELB(rural electrification) programme?
